Sydney: Two saltwater crocodiles have been snapped in a vicious duel to the death in Australia, with rangers warning of the threat the giant reptiles pose.

Sandra Bell was at Lakefield National Park on the Cape York Peninsula in the country’s tropical north when she captured the moment a smaller crocodile was eaten by a much bigger one.

“This is nature at its toothiest and clawiest!,” tweeted Queensland National Parks, adding that the attack took place at a popular waterhole close to a sign on a nearby riverbank warning of crocodiles.

“So it’s a good reminder to remember to be croc wise in croc country,” it added.
